Microsoft Word keeps saying "The Active Directory Domain Services is currently unavailable"?

I need to print off my homework for tomorrow but when i go to print, instead of the usual home printer that comes up it says No Printers Installed but in the past my home one has always come up. When i tried to re-add my printer it said (the message in the question title) and will not let me even attempt to add a printer because when i click ok to stop the message the box with the find printer bit just closes.

I need to print this off for tomorrow, please help!

    Your Microsoft word (or possibly your Printer or computer) is trying to reconnect to a domain or Active directory service, you need to disable this feature.This occurs when i computer is taken from a workplace and installed at home and is not used to being stand-alone.
